This Indian Standard ( Part 1 ) ( Fourth Revision ) was adopted by the Bureau of Indian Standards, after the draft finalized by the Methods of Measurement of Works of Civil Engineering ( Fxcluding ~~;;c~,alley Projects ) Sectional Committee had been approved by the Civil Engineering Division Measurement occupies a very important place in the planning and execution of any civil engineering
work from the time of first estimates to the final completion and settlement of payments for a project. Methods followed for measurement are not uniform and considerable differences exist between practices followed by different construction agencies and also between various Central and State Government departments. While it is recognized that each system of measurement has to be specifically related to administrative and financial organizations within a department responsible for
the work, a unification of various systems at technical level has been accepted as very desirable, specially as it permits a wider range of operation for civil engineering contractors and eliminates ambiguities and misunderstandings of various systems followed. Among various civil engineering items, measurement of buildings was the first to be taken up for standardization and this standard having provisions relating to building work was first published in 1958 and was subsequently revised in 1964. In its second revision. the standard was issued in different parts corresponding to different trades in building and civil engineering works. The third revision of the standard was published in 1974. This fourth revision has been brought out to incorporate the changes found necessary in light of usage of this standard and the suggestions made by various bodies implementing it. For the purpose of deciding whether particular requirement of this standard is complied with, the final value, observed or calculated, expressing the result of a measurement. shall be rounded off in accordance with IS 2 : 1960 ‘Rules for rounding off numerical values ( revised)‘. The number of significant places retained in the rounded off value should be the same as that of the specified value in this standard.
